C# and Java are reasonably similar and are both popular, so either would make a viable choice. If your instinct says C# looks "friendlier" you should probably just go with that, as a large part of the choice is simply personal preference. If you're interested in Unity that's obviously also a point in favour of C#.

If you're already reasonably experienced and want to make a more informed choice you could consider trying both languages to make your own comparison. Pick a few relatively simple tasks (create a window, draw a sprite on screen, read input from a file, etc.) and try to do them with both languages. You'll then have a better idea of your own personal experience and opinion with each.


Personally given the choice of those two languages I would choose C# -- a few design decisions in Java and it's accompanying libraries put me off of it a bit.


I'd say your best bet is to try both!
